Today our newest addition, Badger, is 9 years old. Yes, he was a Halloween puppy.
After a shakey start, he's doing very well with us. He's lost about 1.5 pounds (it's slow because he can't exercise vigorously), and he's really fitting in with the pack.
Lately, he's been initiating play with the other dogs. When I saw him initiating play (or trying to) with Sally, I knew he felt at home here.
He's learning our routines around here....where he's allowed or not allowed, sitting "in his place" to wait to be fed, not rushing out the door when it's opened.
We've been to 2 dock diving events since we've had him, and he's proven to be a wonderful traveler. He's very, very healthy and to me, doesn't look 9 years old. No gray at all.
He's a real lover and had no hesitation about sticking his head in your lap for some pats and scratches. Badger sure seems to totally enjoy the attention he's getting around here.
Yep....old Badgie Boy has been a wonderful addition to our team!
Happy Birthday, Keepsakes's Red Badge of Courage, our Badger!
